Test unlocked phone for network with current Koodo prepaid SIM?


I am considering buying an unlocked Nokia Lumia. and want to check that it works with my Koodo prepaid SIM. If I pop my SIM into the new phone, will that be sufficient to see that it picks up the network?  Anything I should be aware of?

That should be enough. Koodo supports 850 and 1900 MHz bands on 3G/HSPA, and 1700/2100 MHz (band 4) on LTE.

If you plan to use data or picture messaging, you'll have to edit the APN settings. See http://aide.koodomobile.com/plans-add-ons-data-and-other-services/data/How-do-I-setup-data-on-my-Win... for details.

Unless you get a really cheap Lumia model from overseas that has only dual-band 3G, it'll work on Koodo.

Which Lumia are you considering and where are you purchasing it from?

Just stick it in and give it a try!
Thanks for your input.  I'm getting a little squirrel-y now as it's a Kijiji seller, the phone is a Lumia 640 LTE. He says it is an AT&T phone, it's brand new and he just opened packaging to unlock it.  I smell a fish...

Hi Joanne,  

Just to be sure, you can enter the IMEI of the device on this link in order to confirm that it will work on our network: http://koo.do/1aU1u0o

Hope that helps :)
